One song that you listen to on repeat mode on your iPod these days:
Shape Of You.


If you had to put together a soundtrack for your life, which five songs would best describe your life?
Zindagi Ka Safar and Sagar Jaisi Aankhon wali by Kishore Kumar, Quelqu’un m’a dit by Carla Bruni (I absolutely love the tune), Something Stupid by Frank Sinatra and Chumma Chumma De De.

Is there a song you love to listen to when:
You’re happy and upbeat: Chumma Chumma or Happy by Pharrell Williams.
You’re really low: Osad Einy by Amr Diab.
You’re working out: I usually Netflix when I’m on the treadmill.


How would you describe your taste in music?
It’s varied. I have never really confined my choice to a particular genre. I grew up listening to Hindi music, ghazals and all. So, when I do hear English music, it needs to be slow, easy or just fun.

Your favourite time/way to listen to music during the day:
Mornings. Loud and Happy.

Is there any music you used to love as a teenager that you’re now embarrassed by?
Backstreet Boys, oh they can never embarrass me. I loved Shaggy, and Eminem.

One band/musician you want a private concert from: Beyoncé. Queen B is so inspiring.


One live act you would love to see at least once in your life:
Beyoncé. I watched JayZ recently — Lord, I died he is so good!
